Council has one planning scheme for the region, as well as the Mango Hill Infrastructure Development Control Plan (North Lakes) and the Mill at Moreton Bay PDA Development Scheme.
The MBRC Planning Scheme commenced on 1 February 2016. The planning scheme supports growth and maintains the region's unique characteristics. It will assist in maintaining future development throughout the region by identifying the preferred locations for land uses and the standards for new development.
The Caboolture ShirePlan 2005, PineRiversPlan 2006 and Redcliffe City Planning Scheme 2005 are superseded planning schemes. Requests for development to be considered under a superseded scheme were able to be made up until 31 January 2017.
